Orphanage and Water Project

$885 of $500,000 goal

Raised by 11 people in 38 months


Jambo, my name is Brian Chapman, the owner of Black Giraffe Dancing Adventures.  Since 1998 I've handled/escorted groups to different countries in Africa ranging from 150-600 people and in 2013 stared Black Giraffe Dancing Adventure.  
BDGA is helping to raise funds for The Black Giraffe Foundation a 501(C)(3) organization.  The foundations goal is to raise $500K.   Some of the funds will be used to drill a water well for the Mulala Village, located outside of Arusha, Tanzania.  The Black Giraffe Foundation will also be using some of the funds to support the Osiligi Orphanage which will include helping them finish their home being built and to sponsor some of the kids for school during the school year. 

Having spent the past 17 years traveling exclusively to the continent of Africa and working, visiting and getting to know the people I always wanted to some how give back.  I asked myself the question, what would be the best way to help/reach the most people?  For me, a water well answered that question.  Having a new well will not only save the women/kids of the village 2-4hrs a day it will also help them to finish the secondary school for the village.  Please help make the dream of having a water well for those living in the village come true. 

Asante Sana(Thank you very much) for your donation and helping to make the Mulala Village dream a reality.
